Health & Safety Measures

On your move-in date, you will arrive at the front entrance of our building to check in. We are located at 60 Harbord Street (Spadina Avenue and Harbord Street). Please ensure that you bring photo identification with you as you will need this to collect your welcome package and keys.

Our welcome team will be on hand to process your move-in and answer any questions you may have, and we also have carts available that you can borrow to assist with your move.

Once you’re checked in, you’ll receive your mailbox key through our contactless pick-up method. You’ll use this key to access your welcome package and room fob in your mailbox.

As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, we continue to monitor public health guidance to ensure the safety measures we have in place are up-to-date and are informed by evidence. The University has implemented a range of measures across our three campuses in response to COVID-19 that have allowed for a safe environment. Some of these strategies will be eased in alignment with public health guidance but will be redeployed as needed.

For all the latest details, visit UTogether, U of T’s home for information related to COVID-19.

Moving In

Face masks or face coverings are highly encouraged in all University of Toronto buildings, including Graduate House.

We ask that you bring no more than 2 family members or friends with you to help you move-in. In order to provide a contactless move-in experience, our staff will not be able to assist in unloading or moving personal items.

Underground parking is available below Graduate House: (Lot N – Grad House) and there is a laneway at the east side of the building. However, you do run the risk of being ticketed if you leave your car unattended in the lane way. 

If you are an international student and will be traveling to Graduate House from outside of Canada, please review the information on this webpage.

How can I meet other Graduate House residents?

You will be assigned a Residence Advisor (RA) upon move in. Your Residence Advisor will reach out to you after you move in to set up a 1-1 virtual chat. Feel free to reach out to your RA during your time at Graduate House. Your RA is available to answer any questions, and support you with whatever you need!

We invite you to connect with other incoming and current residents on Facebook: Check out our stay connected section on our website.
